Picked up my computer today. Went to Apple with a list and they returned it a few days later saying that they could not duplicate any of my problems. Still have the list. They did give me a new and improved power cord and just in the nick of time because the power went out in the Apple store just as he handed me the cord. No lights, no internet, no service. I left behind a crowd of bewildered Apple users.
But some good did come out of all this. Let’s see — Tuesday I dropped my computer off and went straight to the gym. I’ve been to the gym twice this week. I’m getting things done. Priced shed and bought one. Seriously looking to paint the outside of my house, looking at colors, and called Ronnie to paint. Met Carol for dinner, read a few books, and even vacuumed. I know, your thinking — all this she couldn’t do with a functioning laptop? Sad, but true.
The squirrel is still around. Quiet today, noisy yesterday. Spent a bit of yesterday with my ear to the dining room wall listening to the squirrel. At one point I heard him scurrying in the dining room ceiling. A bit nervous, I ran up to Rachel’s room to see if he was in there but, no, he’s still in the bones of the house. Picked up a third trap from Angelika. She also recommended crackers — Ritz crackers. Maybe Trader Joe crackers aren’t tasty enough. Anyway, when I picked up the trap, she gave me a baggy of Ritz crackers. The traps are set!
Let’s all join hands and send some positive energy to the squirrel. Let’s direct him to the peanut butter. Eyes closed , breathe deep, Ommmm, let him know this is the way out. This is the only way out. It’s a good thing . . . into the trap, pleeeeeaase!!!!!!
Dinner tonight: Sushi and if all goes as planned, Rachel will be joining us.
